Whip + Birds.
Whip = argument, strife. Birds = anxiety, verbal news, a couple.
I would likely read this pair as an argument between two people. This could be a couple if such was involved in the reading.
Birds + Whip.
The main theme is the Birds in this case, modified by the Whip. My first thought about this reversed pairing is a phone call about an argument; although an irate phone call fits as well. Throw in a Fish or Fox according to taste, and then you could have a telemarketing phone call. 🙂
